Cases are revisited across chapters, encouraging students to consider multiple perspectives.
Psychology as an integrated whole. Laura King presents psychology as an integrated field in which many specialized subfields overlap and where research findings in one subfield support important studies and exciting discoveries in another.
Function before dysfunction.The Science of Psychology begins with the premise that we need to explore functional behavior in its own right and as a context for abnormal behavior. In other words, we need to study why things go right before studying why things go wrong.
Health and Wellness. Every chapter concludes with a section highlighting Health and Wellness in psychology. The section illustrates the relevance of psychology for students by focusing on the implications of the previous chapter on their own health and wellness.
Industrial/Organization (I/O) Psychology Chapter. The Science of Psychology includes a chapter on I/O Psychology to examine the role of psychology in the workplace, the environment where students eventually will spend most of their waking hours each week.

This data is anonymously collected from the students who use LearnSmart, the adaptive learning learning system that provides students with individualized assessment of their own progress. Because virtually every text paragraph is tied to several questions that students answer while using LearnSmart, the specific concepts with which students are having the most difficulty are easily pinpointed through empirical data in the form of a "heat map" report.
The At-Risk Student Report provides instructors with one-click access to a dashboard that identifies students who are at risk of dropping out of the course due to low engagement levels.
The Category Analysis Report details student performance relative to specific learning objectives and goals, including APA learning goals and outcomes and levels of Bloom's taxonomy.
is a one-of-a-kind visual analytics dashboard- now available for both instructors and students- that provides at-a-glance information regarding student performance.
